Dom Pérignon Vintage 2005 600 cl
PERFECT HARMONY, Dom Pérignon only exists in vintages.
Only the best grapes from a single year are chosen. Each vintage is unique and reinterprets the uniqueness of the seasons. Dom Pérignon dares not to declare a vintage if the result is not exceptional. After more than eight years of production in the cellar, the wine reflects Dom Pérignon's perfect balance, its most beautiful promise. It is Dom Pérignon Vintage, the fullness of harmony.
Dom Pérignon is Vintage only. Each Vintage wine is created from the best grapes grown in one single year. To reinvent itself by interpreting the unique character of the seasons. To dare to declare the Vintage only when the harvest meets its ideal. Such is the commitment of Dom Pérignon. Dom Pierre Pérignon took up his duty as cellarer at the Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668. For 47 years he continued to invent: improving the grapes’ quality with new viticulture techniques, blending different crus and grapes varieties to obtain the finest wines, gentle and fractional pressing to obtain white wines from black grapes, all those innovations became the fundamental rules of the “method champenoise”.
Chardonnay & Pinot noir
The wine has a strong character and a powerful presence – there is even something physical about it. Overall, it is structured, focused, firm and dense. Its intriguingly spicy, flowery finish remains present in each sip. The wine’s remarkably rich bouquet reveals itself in successive waves: first the intense fruit, more black than red, which then melts into silvery minerality. Notes of praline and coriander complement the whole.
